Also, I'm fairly certain it's more than two. His parents explained through his doctors words to the effect of "He's avoiding reality and difficult situations by creating a new personality / identity for different situations." Eh. This stuff is depressing. =_=;
Well, I guess the question would be basically which him do you kill. Even if scientists invented a cure, you would basically have to kill one of him. It's very unfortunate that his parents got divorced, it could only make things harder on both of him. It is weird that he remembers you in both his personallities. Normally that doesn't happen.
I see. And yeah. He went to church camp at Florida, and had a break down. I still worry about him all the time. Since he's been gone, his parents got divorced, after they had twins. It's quite tragic. Interestingly, he's always remembered me though. No matter which "personality" is active. It's kinda cruel, gives me a little hope for him and then science tells me "no". I can only imagine what it's like. :\
It kinda sucks, but I only "change" about once or twice a month, so it could be worse. I'm glad your friend's doing better. It sounds like he had it MUCH worse than I do. The sad thing is that he'll never be able to live a life without all the pills he apparently needs. I can more or less get around it, but it still ain't fun. I can indeed tell that you've already tried to fix it, but I think it's doing quite well as is.
Well, that has got to be no bueno! I have a friend with multiple personality and a few other mental health issues. He went as far as to almost kill his father. He's in Vegas now, and I hear he's doing pretty well. Being a teenager is what made it the hardest for him because his body chemicals and hormone levels were on a constant flux evidently. But I think they finally have is meds figured out and his chemicals steady enough for him to be happy as he is.
And yeah, it's in Python. I'm considering making it into C++. Maybe. If I do, it will use actual threads rather than thread emulation like I'm doing now with Python. The problem is that I can't type-define a function pointer in my base Task class then use it to point to a member function of an actual implementation. "Cannot convert between ActualGameTask::void (*) to Task::void (*)" which is weird, because all I would need to fix this is a static cast ; the rest of the function signature is entirely the same, and my classes are polymorphic ( can you tell I've tried this already? XD )
EH. It's a headache.
*also, I'm not actually bi-polar fyi. It just feels that way a lot of the times.
*hits self in head* For some reason I was thinking of a different language than Python. Also I didn't see the google code link. I think you're closer to normal than I am though. At least you don't have multiple personalities.
My favorite songs and bands are pretty obscure. My favorite song would have to be either "shadow of uther" by kamelot or (a song possibly as different as is possible from the previous) "Master Blaster/Everywhere" remix by squad-e. It's a bit difficult to tell what bands I like since most of the things I listen to are from some person you'll never hear of again, like Jimmy J, QFX, or Jaxx. And it's only for one song. Some favorite bands would have to be Tune up!, Re-con, Hixxy, Tsukui kazuhito (hoping I spelled that right), Kamelot, Avantasia, Green Day, and Styx. Zebrahead, and The All American Rejects have some good songs, but I have to pick and choose. I don't like rap either, but it can be done well. Especially if it's integrated into a decent song, and not overused. I used to be huge into rock. That drifted over into a couple VERY specific types of power metal, and neoclassical metal. I got kind of fed up with that one day, and discovered trance. I liked it, but it was too slow, so I got into happy hardcore, and uk hardcore. Now It appears that I'm drifting over to music from 8 and 16 bit video games of all things. While I feel you may be able to predict MY likes and dislikes, my other side has completely different tastes. Heck, for all I kno you may be my other side trying to screw with me, but I don't think that's very likely since he think pokemon is stupid, and you joined before I did.
Huh? Oh, it's entirely open source, actually! (:
And engine.py only defines games and 'threading' classes.
Therefor, adding the 3D rendering would be as 'simple' as writing a 3D map editor/renderer and OW stuffs. Poke.py and Data.py take care of the 'pokemon' part -- species info / individual pokemon info/ etc.
And seeing as it's hosted on Google Code, and written in Python, using an SDL port, I don't see how I could go about NOT making this open source. xD
And oh geez. I'm pretty bipolar. You'd probably learn more about me by reading my old blog posts ( mymoonlit.wordpress.com -- there's quite a few and some are lengthy. I reccomend reading the 'writing' section if you read anything. )
Some of my favorite songs...
Misguided Ghosts - Paramore ( Kind of acousticy )
Soul Sick - Rob Thomas ( I love nearly ALL of his songs, btw. Great guy, great music ).
Zebrahead in general also makes some of my favorites. Some of their music is awesome, the rest of it sounds like crap. But I like the rebel persona radiating from their music. Not the moron stereotypical "bad***" rebel, though. The kind that think.
I love most of P!nk's music, also.
Katy Perry is fun to listen to sometimes.
Ingrid Michaelson is also pleasant, I think.
All American Rejects are nice. (:
I absolutely can not stand the vast majority of rap that is blasted from speakers in cars by wanna be gangsters. A shockingly large amount of it is rediculously shallow, and sounds like Black-Eyed-Peas without auto-tune. But I have seen a few decent examples of rap, so I'm not entirely against the genre. That's pretty much the peaks of my musical interests.
I can tell a TON about people by their interests, the questions they ask, the things they state, their vocabulary and syntax. Give me a few weeks with somebody, and I can predict their actions, reactions, intentions, motives, emotions, etc. Sometimes word for word, even. It's non-intentional of course. I don't do it on purpose. That would be kind of weird.
I'm not, I'm merely stating an opinion and it happens to be shared. Either that, or I'm psychic, and I'd be just as (if not more) surprised as you. I just found out about your Python pokemon engine. It look good. It needs more work, but it definately is a lot better than something I would do. But chances are, you're not going to include everything everyone wants, so make sure it's as customizable as possible. That way the people at Game Dev can actually make something really spectacular. Like if they wanted to make a GOOD 3D pokemon game, it would probably be best to make it easy to integrate a new one. The same goes for most of the other aspects. I personally love unique battle engines like the one in the mother series, so it would be cool if that would be modifiable too. I guess what I'm saying is that, if you feel comfortable with it, I think you should release the source when the project gets a little farther along. Again, it's your project, and as such it is completely your call, I just would like to see a game that actually uses the fact that it's got a whole computer behind it instead of a just a ds for once. A bit off topic, but what music genres do you like? You'd be surprised how much you can tell about a person's personallity by what music they like.
You'd be surprised at just how much asm some of these people use for gimmicks, whereas here there are only a handful of hacks that do (excluding day and night and JPAN's engine of course) anything at all with asm. It's not like it's that much harder to write asm on a GBA processer than a SNES one, it just hasn't become almost a standard yet. B2/W2 do look a bit better, at least they handle the 3d aspect without having horrible big block pixels rendered in, but I still claim that if they're going for a 3d game, make it a 3d game. Give some camera controls, like what was at least planned for D/P/Pt . Don't just throw the 3d aspect on top. I just figure that if they're gonna require a PC/Mac/whatever to run a pokemon game, they might as well make something that actually uses that extra processing power and ram. If they made a pokemon game that used all the abilities that a Comp has, I would definately play it. It's kind of like writting an atari 2600 game for the wii. There's just no point.
